Aleksi Campagne + Frisco Lee & Greg Smith


Aleksi Campagne:

Aleksi Campagne is a 25-year-old singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Montreal. His music blends his folk roots with his jazz training, which combined with the avant-garde distortion pedals on his violin, make for wickedly catchy dancing anthems.
Much like the eclectic arts scene of his hometown, Aleksi continues to push his musical boundaries. His virtuosic violin style has been compared to that of Andrew Bird, he accompanies himself on the violin while singing and he has a voice that lends homage to R&B legend Sam Cooke.
His latest project is a four-piece band, made up of some of the finest young musicians Montreal has to offer, Stephane Krims (Bass), Aaron Dolman (drums) and Zach Bachand (guitar). In the past few years, Aleksi and his band toured across western Canada performing in festivals like Farm Fest Terre Ferme near WillowBunch Saskatchewan, Folk on the Rocks Festival in Red Rock Ontario, Festival du Loup in Lafontaine Ontario, Northern Lights Festival in Sudbury as well as concerts in major Cities like Edmonton, Regina, Winnipeg, Toronto and Montreal.

Frisco Lee:

He is a Montreal born-and-raised musician who’s been anchored in the underground music scene for almost a decade. Anglophone-francophone, hailing from the suburbs and armed with a Blues background, he began playing the bar circuits and hosting the Bar de Courcelle Open Mic, lending his talents to a slew of bands and unique songwriters. A couple of years ago, he began cultivating a widely-varied collection of self-penned songs in the style of old Blues, Country, Folk and Jazz, striking a contemporary chord with Indie and Psychedelic stylings, and passionate about creating timeless sounds and pertinent poetry. Frisco Lee is expected to release his first collection of songs as an EP, accompanying himself on acoustic guitar.

Greg Smith:

He is a Roots-Americana songwriter from Walters Falls, Ontario, Canada. Greg writes character driven story based songs matched with dynamic vocals and inventive guitar parts.

Growing up farming in rural Ontario Greg spent most of his time alone, but with a guitar he found a friend that could fill long hours. Greg found his true start in music when he moved to Budapest, Hungary in 2015. There he began playing and recording with Lone Waltz Records and found the audiences and opportunities that he had been searching for at home. Now again living near Walters Falls Ontario, Greg continues performing while reconnecting with his roots through organic farming. Greg has toured in both Canada and the EU and was selected in 2017's Folk Music Ontario Developing Artist Program. Greg is currently recording two new projects, Michael, a sequel to his 2016 EP Iris and his debut full length record.
